20 Feb '12 Ivor Dembina, Gion Leka. Listen to the Voice of Americans from Nunhead. The only Radio program for Americans living in Nunhead. Our best show, ever! English comic Ivor Dembina on fine form as he sits in with Frog on the Green proprietor, Nunhead resident and former Albanian, Gion Leka. He brought along Bobby Dowler, an artist and restauranter-in-arms (with Gion) at the Provisional Soup Kitchen on Copeland Road. Bobby's from the oppressed nation of Croydon, south east London. It just happened an hour ago and I can't remember a thing - that is the mark of a great, great show. Oh, Ivor was trying out jokes!
Gion and I had met perhaps eight years ago at the Father's Baby and Toddler Group at the Townley Road Clinic, run by lovely Penny in East Dulwich. I hadnt remembered him when I called him on the phone to arrange for him to come on the show - such a small small world Nunhead is! He told me how I was laid low at the time and was a very attentive father, going often, for instance, to wipe my son's nose.
Lisa Moyle was wonderful again as co-host. Hannah Brown was expertly manning the tech desk. Enjoy!
